Laurent Biertho MD

After being trained as a physician and surgeon in Belgium, I had the opportunity to undergo training in Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York during my residency. I then trained in Minimally Invasive Surgery at McMaster University.

I was then offered a surgeon position at the Institut Universitaire de Cardiologie et de Pneumologie de Qu├ębec (IUCPQ in Quebec city). Our Institution’s objective in recruiting me was to introduce laparoscopic surgery, in particular to perform a certain type of bariatric surgery (Duodenal Switch) for which our Center is internationally recognized.

Currently, more than 70% of the surgeries performed at IUCPQ use minimally invasive approaches, to the benefits of more than 400 patients with severe obesity operated every year in our department.
